Creating your Christmas Decoration Counting Game
Grab a large cardboard box and your black sharpie. Draw the shape of a Christmas tree including the star and trunk. Color in the tree using paint sticks.
Take a pair of scissors and cut out holes big enough to hold your shatterproof Christmas decorations but not let them drop through (yet!). I used my shatterproof Christmas baubles for this activity but use what you have available.
Place the shatterproof ornaments into a bag or basket beside the box and place the dice or counting flashcards onto the box.
Invite your toddler or preschooler to choose and read the first flashcard or roll the dice. Ask them to count the number of dots on the dice or the pictures on the flashcard (if available).
Next, ask them to count out that number of Christmas baubles and place them in the holes on the cardboard Christmas tree.
Fun Counting Activity
This was such a great counting activity for my toddlers. But the best part was that they were able to play with it on their own afterwards. After we finished counting, I made the holes a little bigger so that they could drop the shatterproof ornaments down through the holes. They absolutely loved this part!
My twins are 2.5 years old.
